Obama & Labor Unions Meet to Plan Job Creation

Yeah, this ought to work…
Barack Obama, the worst jobs president since the Great Depression, met with labor leaders to discuss how to create jobs.

And you wonder why the unemployment rate is stuck at 9.8%?
RedState reported this from the Department of Labor:

Obama, Solis and Labor Leaders

President Obama, Secretary Solis and key White House staff met last week with a dozen leaders from several national labor unions to discuss ways to work together to strengthen the economy. The group talked about creating good jobs for the American people, and how the partnership with labor unions is essential to growing our economy and continuing our recovery. The president and the labor secretary also highlighted critical steps that the administration has taken and pledged to continue to work closely with organized labor in the coming months on important economic issues.

    the thing that is most hilarious, he met with 20 CEOs the day before, any goodwill or more imporantly trust he built up with them is gone as soon as he meets with these SEUI goons.

    Every small business owner I know does not trust this loser one bit, they are all hunkering down. no hiring, no expanding.

    This means one thing and one thing only.

    More union bailouts. More benefits for unemployment.

    Lots of pay for no work.

    The usual union deal. And in return they promise more mediocrity.

    Number One Idea floated at Labor Conference:

    All unions immediately begin Wildcat Strike until Employers hire 15 percent more workers. Unemployment solved and union rolls expand by 15%. (It’s a two-fer!)

    when did labor unions start hiring people?

  • rickl

    The government and labor unions teaming up to create jobs. Yeah, that’ll work.

  • John Fembup

    If “jobs” is the problem, the federal government just needs to hire about 5 million people.

    Problem solved.

  • daryl

    But, but, don’t you know unions have been creating jobs ever since the inception of unions.
    This works by the demand of enough work to employ two people. Contact the union for the labor and you are sent ten people to do the work.
    There’s eight jobs created immediately.

    I’ve completed a post about this on my website. The best way to explain Obama is with the fable of the scorpion and the fox.


    This is from the post-

    When I was told the fable the victim was a fox. Some say it was a frog, it doesn’t matter. The key to the story is the moral of the story. I’ve repeated this story to my kids, to my colleagues and my friends to explain how they handle people who disappoint them over and over. The fable’s moral is that people don’t really change, they can’t. Their nature is their nature and only a HUGE event in their lives (like religion) can change their basic personality and even then it is a fight for them to continue on any new path.

    Don’t get me wrong, people can change, but only in a few small degrees from their basic personality’s path. Take GWB for example. He is a very religious person now but at one time he says he was a partying fool, irresponsible and carefree. What people gloss over here is that GWB’s aberrant behavior WAS is drinking and screwing off. He was raised and exposed to decent people living decent lives with great morals. His father was a very good man from the greatest generation of men and women we produced since our founding. His mother is a rock. His brothers were all good people. What GWB did was become the prodigal son of sorts. His love for Laura made him realize he was screwing up and he returned to the life he had already experienced directly or by association.

    However, Obama’s life is totally different. What made him who he is today is the polar opposite of what influenced GWB. Obama’s whole inner circle of influence was made up of communists, nutjobs, an unstable home life, an unstable mother, radicals and on and on. He is the sum total of what he experienced. It is what it is. Now he can act like he is different, and Lord knows he did to get the job he has, but his core is his core. He is a scorpion.

    So how does that lend to the way we take anything he says as gospel. Simple, don’t believe him if he is claiming this time it is different. …

    I found a cute educational video to explain the story and put it in the post. That way if any of you have liberal friends who seem a little slow on the uptake, you can use it to help them avoid being stung yet once again.

    Obama is who he is. He has no intentions of changing, only grabbing more power for his people. Remember just because we are in America doesn’t mean we are immune to having Chavez type personalities running our nation.

    I saw this coming. Which is why I wrote the book.

    This is the same type of deranged thinking that caused Pelosi to believe extending unemployment benefits creates jobs.

    These people are seriously sick.

  • AF 77-84

    The article is one big punchline to a joke. unions create jobs, roflmao.

  • NFL Players Union

    Watch us “create” jobs next year.

  • bigkahuna

    I dont see why this is a problem for Obama. He knows exactly what he needs to do. Hire more union government workers with the best benefits and pensions.. We all know paper pushers and bureaucrats are what is needed. They build the best stuff from nothing. They produce the most. Then when you cant afford them and you cant hide the size of the bloated government you blame republicans for not wanting higher taxes and lay off alot of police and fireman and then pass 450 weeks of unemployment since thats what Nancy says is the best thing for the economy.

    Never missunderestimate the liberals ability to missunderstand how to totally screw up everything they touch.

    You gotta problem with dat?

  • kato

    Wait til we have medical care run like the post office.

  • RedBeard

    Archer has nailed it.

    Obama is what he is, a statist/Marxist/collectivist/monkeywrencher/Alinsky-ite, and to expect him to start behaving differently now is hardly rational. Hoping for a Road to Damascus conversion carries worse odds than playing the lottery.

    “Hire more union government workers with the best benefits and pensions.. We all know paper pushers and bureaucrats..” and all with an allegiance to the dem party.

    If the NFL(#13) is going to create more jobs next year .it must mean each team will field 16 players per side. That will require at least 4 more refs and 20 cheerleaders per game. It’ll be a madhouse but how can it possibly go wrong.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Anyone remember that “jobs summit” from about a year ago?

    It’s pretty obvious how that turned out…
